ZNE license plate

Save wildlife & wild places with a special Zoo New England license plate!

Thank you to everyone who purchased a license plate in support of our conservation efforts! We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve reached our registration goal, and new registrations are waitlist-only.

If you already registered:

What happens now?
Your applications will be transferred to the RMV for processing. The RMV will take over and start manufacturing the plates. Because of the special protective film that covers the plates, the RMV estimates that plates will be ready for pick up between 6-8 months.

What do I need to do?
No further action is needed at this time. You can relax in the passenger seat while the plates are being manufactured. The RMV will mail you a letter when your plate is ready for pick up at the RMV branch listed on your application.

Now that the RMV is taking control of the wheel, Zoo New England will also be waiting to hear back from the RMV for the remainder of the process. We can hardly wait for these ZNE specialty plates to hit the road! Soon you will be able to display your support for ZNE’s field conservation programs. While you wait for the final push, please check out our Conservation Blog to learn more about our field conservation programs. Thank you for your continued support and we’ll see you on the road! Beep beep!

If you're interested in applying now:

Please note that the RMV places a temporary hold on receiving new orders while they process the first 750 applicants and manufacture their plates. To place a future order, you can email and ask to be placed on the waitlist. We will contact you via email when the RMV has added our plate onto their website where you will be able to order it directly.

About the plate:

Proceeds from the sale of this exclusive "Saving Wildlife" license plate directly support Zoo New England’s field conservation programs to save wildlife and wild places in Massachusetts and around the world, so you’ll not only be driving in style — you’ll be making a difference for endangered species like gorillas and countless others.
